What is Chlamydia?
Chlamydia is a bacterial infection which is usually spread through partaking in unprotected sex, including oral, anal and vaginal, as well as from the sharing of sex toys with an infected person. It is the most commonly diagnosed STD in the UK, especially amongst sexually active teens and young adults, though, due to it being often symptomless people tend not to get checked as much as necessary. It is highly recommended, therefore, that anyone who falls into these categories gets screened every year or when changing sexual partners.
What causes Chlamydia?
Chlamydia is caused by a bacterium called chlamydia trachomatis which is passed on from person to person via infected fluids, including semen or vaginal fluid. Once passed on, it lives within the vagina, penis and/or rectum and as such, it can be easily shared through unprotected sex without a condom or through the sharing of sex toys with a person carrying the infection. In some cases, it can be spread by the genitals simply coming into contact with an infected partner’s genitals, without penetration or ejaculation being necessary, or infected fluid getting into the eye.
What are the common symptoms for chlamydia?
More than half of women with chlamydia will experience no symptoms making it even more crucial to get regular testing if you have different partners or unprotected sex. If symptoms occur, they will often begin within a 21 day window of contact with the infected person and can include:
Nearly 50% of men carrying it will not experience symptoms either, but if they do they will usually show anywhere between 1 and 3 weeks from the initial infection. They can include:
Symptoms can disappear on their own but this does not mean the infection has gone. So if you experience any unusual changes after having unprotected sex, it is vital you get tested.
If left untreated, chlamydia can cause a host of unpleasant, longterm and even life-altering issues for both men and women.
In women, untreated chlamydia can cause:
In men, untreated chlamydia can result in:
Whether male or female, and whether you are experiencing active symptoms or not; if you have had unprotected sex or changed sexual partners, it is vital for your short and longterm health to get screened. It is simple to do and available from your GP, local sexual health clinic and it is even possible to do online.
How to treat Chlamydia?
Treating Chlamydia is very simple so there is no reason to be concerned if you have tested positive for it. As such, the first step is to get screened either by your GP or local sexual health clinic. You can also order a test kit online and perform it at home if you feel more comfortable doing this. The test is simple and requires you to insert a swab into your urethra to check if your fluids are carrying the bacteria.
If you test positive, your doctor or pharmacist will recommend you take an antibiotic, usually given as a 100mg dose to be taken twice a day or else as a one-off treatment. It is crucial to take the complete course to ensure you fully clear the infection.

How long does it take to treat chlamydia?
